Wellesley beer update
We have an update from Wellesley resident and brewer Chris Mirick, whose gluten-free beer we wrote about in October (“Wellesley homebrewer: Don’t fear this gluten-free beer”).
His Ankleknocker Gluten Free Pale Ale has been launched commercially, and Ankleknocker is going to be a line of gluten free beers from Zelus Beer Co. in Medfield. Sherborn Wine & Spirits has begun carrying Ankleknocker, and other stores in the area should have it soon as well, Mirick says.
“We’re working on a summer ale next, as well as some other ideas. With the weather turning warmer and people wanting to get together and socialize as we come out of this long dark period, I’m excited to have a great gluten-free option out there!” he writes.
Bountiful will make a trip to you
